It’s time to get wild and crazy today, friends!
Not only am I sharing pizza with you (practically a staple for Friday nights in my house), but it’s a Hawaiian pizza with a hashbrown crust. Crazy, right?
But, before I get into the recipe and all that good stuff, pizza on Friday nights reminds me of dinner with my family, more commonly known as FFF (Fast Food Friday). This tradition started several years ago, as Friday nights are always good to relax, unwind, and leave the cooking to restaurants. Am I right?
My parents often order pizza, some other form of take-out, or will go out to dinner. And that’s exactly what the hubster and I like to do on Friday nights, too. By the end of the week, I’m often too tired to cook and tell the hubster “We’re eating whatever you make or buy!” It’s pretty much my infamous line.
But when I had the opportunity to try Hungry Jack Hashbrowns, I got the brilliant idea to make my own pizza, with a hashbrown crust. And even better, it would serve as our Friday night pizza for the hubster and I. That means a night in and relaxing with a movie and some pizza. Sounds pretty good for the end of the week!
Have you tried Hungry Jack Hashbrowns? It’s a delicious way to put a fun twist in your dinners. After all, hashbrowns aren’t just for breakfast!
